What’s the meaning behind the way we sit?
If speech is bread, then body language is butter when it comes to communication. When we have a hard time expressing ourselves through speaking, using non-verbal communication can make things easier.
If you look hard enough, you can tell much more about someone just by looking at the way they carry themselves, their mannerisms and yes, the way they sit, too! Emotions and personalities are largely communicated through body language after all.
Having a conversation with someone consists of much more than just words, we use all kinds of tools to express ourselves, most of which come from the subconscious. This deep level of communication is the very thing that makes it easier to get to know each other on a meaningful level.
While we have an innate ability to translate other people’s behavior, we might have a harder time deciphering our own or being conscious about the way we use our personal body language.
